Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to browse, and submit a question or comment if you wish. We are dedicated to providing information and services in a professional, caring and personalized manner, and strive to make our families and visitors feel comfortable while paying respects to their loved ones. 

The "Thoughtful Guidance"  difference; we are a full service funeral home.  Many of our packages include certified copies of the death certificate, and no matter the level of service you choose we will help obtain certified copies and submit newspaper notices. The cost of these non-funeral home costs are not marked up.  All families may choose to have an online memorial page that remains active in our archives and may be linked to your social media accounts at no additional cost.  We are on call 24/7 and have years of experience and knowledge to help your family.  You aren't expected to go it alone.

Important to know:  When a death occurs please call the funeral home at 978-263-5333; please do not rely on email or texts to contact us for the first notification call.  The funeral home phone line is answered 24/7 by our funeral directors or an anwering service rep. We do not want to take a chance on missing an email or text for such an urgent matter.

Looking for a memorial page?                                                                                                                                                                                                             Look to the listing on the right for current services using the arrows at the bottom of the list to see additional pages.   For a past service, select the title "Past Services" for the search page. Type the name in the search bar to find the record.  All our memorial pages complete with obituaries, tributes and photos are archived at no cost to families.

Online Tributes                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           If you cannot visit us in person, or if you wish to post a thoughtful message for other online visitors to read, please visit the Online Condolences     You are with the family in thought by signing the online guestbook, expressing your condolences or sharing memories, and have the option to be reminded of the anniversary of a death.

VERY IMPORTANT: A Word about Flowers

In Massachusetts regulations prohibit funeral homes to sell flowers or receive compensation for floral purchases. We do not offer that service from our web site.  Many of the newspaper and online obituary sites connect to us when we submit the notice and/or post a memorial page. They may offer floral sales on their pages, and often people mistakenly believe we endorse their products.  However to ensure quality work, prompt service and timely delivery, we encourage people to order flowers directly from local brick and mortar florist shops. You may call the funeral home at 978-263-5333 and we can provide the name and number of the florist that the family has chosen. 

Pre-Need pages: If you take the time to complete a pre-need information record, we ask that you also please call the funeral home at 978-263-5333 to confirm receipt.  We don't want to take the chance of overlooking an email notification.  Thank you!
